The Living with diabetes long-term group aims to improve our understanding of the long-term self-management of diabetes. This group will focus on a range of topics involved in self-management, including diet, exercise, glycaemic control including, hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia, structured education and peer support, along with other more informal learning and support options.
It will also cover mental health, psychological and emotional support, and behavioural changes related to the adherence to medication.
If you would like to share your views with the group on where research into long-term self-management and glycaemic control should be focused, please get in touch: email@example.com.
Chair: Dr Mark Evans, University of Cambridge
Dr Mark Evans is interested in hypoglycaemia and how the brain detects changes in glucose levels. He works on the development of new ways to help people avoid hypoglycaemia, using, for example, structured education or technology.
Our diabetes steering groups are bringing together researchers, healthcare professionals and people with diabetes to create a roadmap for new research.
